One of the challenges in attending out-of-town events is finding an accommodation that is not too hard on the wallet but at the same time offers great value for money. This was the first thing that came to my mind when I was invited to the Blog Con 2019 in Cagayan de Oro. Luckily, the organizer, Miss KC Curay of The Explorer’s Channel, took care of our accommodation and booked us at Marianne Suites.

Here’s a walk-through video of the hotel.

Located at the “quieter” part of the city, Marianne Suites is a small budget friendly hotel with very courteous and friendly staff. Amenities include a cozy coffee shop on the ground floor, a dining area for breakfast and a function room on the top floor. Despite its no-frills approach, the place has charm and warmth that gives you a distinct feeling that you are always a welcome guest and they will take good of you.

Got this from the coffee shop. Definitely filling. Love this one.


I am not a big fan of Frappes, but this one is something else. This is a must try.

Mariane Suites provide basic guest services fit for their category. Towels & toiletries are standard in each room. Free fast WIFI is available at the lobby and the rooms. Free breakfast is also inclusive in the booking. Love the breakfast here. It’s not fancy but the food is good. The rooms are clean and they had a complimentary bottled water when we checked in. The only downside I can see is their water supply. They did put a sign that the water is not for drinking. It’s a little inconvenient because although I never drink tap water, I expect potable water for brushing my teeth. But this can be easily remedied by using the complimentary bottled water they provided.

Overall, my experience at Marianne Suites is good. If you are travelling to CDO and you don’t want to stay in expensive business hotels, this place is a very good alternative for you and your family.
